D.C.'s near record warmth comes to an end Monday evening with a round of strong to severe storms.
A severe thunderstrom watch is in effect for much of the area until 11 p.m.
Monday will be the last day we'll see temperatures in the 80s for quite a while.
The D.C. region could get storms capable of producing damaging winds and hail and a slight chance of an isolated tornado between 7 p.m. and 9 p.m. StormTeam4 is in Weather Alert mode.
Storms were developing southwest of D.C. about 5:20 p.m.
Monday's storms will taper off after midnight.
Highs will be back in the 70s on Tuesday.
Rainy weather will again be possible Thursday evening, and rain appears likely for Friday. In fact, Friday may need to be another Weather Alert Day, Storm Team meteorologist Chuck Bell said. A large storm from the Midwest will bring rain and the likelihood of thunderstorms once again.
